  3. Don't prevent Mac from going to sleep

    Skype Helper (Renderer) is preventing sleep on macOS Catalina 10.15.6. I have configured Energy Saver to turn off the screen after 10 minutes, but it never does. When I look at Activity Monitor, I see that the process "Skype Helper (Renderer)" has "Preventing Sleep" set to "Yes". I'm running the latest version of Skype (8.64.0.80) as of this writing. This is clearly a bug; there's no reason for any application to be preventing sleep like this.

  4. Audio and video setting for Android

    The Android version of the app doesn't have audio video setting, for which I am not able to set up my head set. Please add this setting.

  5. I was once able to separate my paragraphs with some empty space, but not anymore. Spaces between paragraphs makes it easier to read.

    Imaging reading a letter with continuous text, line by line with no spaces for new paragraphs. It sucks! Which is why I would love to see this as an option, at the very least, so long messages would be easier to read.

  7. skype number sms

    Skype Numbers need to be able to receive sms verifications from banks, retirement accounts, etc. Those who live and work overseass need to have a safe means to receive the verification sms messages and this is one reason why they purchase a Skype number. Most companies now require verification via sms to phone number, but if you are overseas, you need your Skype number to provide the sms no matter where you are.

  13. On using 'Unread from here' option, it should also be marked as unseen to the sender.

    On right click, when the sender chooses the option of 'Unread from here' it is marked as unread only for the viewer and not the sender of the message. It should also be marked as unread for the sender. I know it can be misleading. So this feature should only be available for a limited period of time. Let's say, I received a message and I viewed it by mistake and I don't want to let the other person know or want to reply afterwards with the confirmation that the other person does not feel ignored, I should be able…

  14. Allow "all" Or "selected members" when starting a group call

    Sometimes we want to make call in group but we don't want to add like 1-2 members as they are not required, as it will be a hassle to ask them to leave after they join. And we don't have to make a new group with that members. This will make the group more useful and reusable.
